For your long-term staffing needs, work with a direct hire recruiter who delivers results

Lucas Group can help you drive business success utilizing our direct hire recruiting model. Sometimes it makes sense to pay when your new hire is on board, as opposed to at the start of the recruitment process. While the best tactic in many scenarios, direct hire recruiting is particularly appropriate for companies looking to fill mid-level to upper management positions on a non-confidential basis.

At Lucas Group, we treat direct hire recruiting with thoroughness, professionalism and discretion. We possess an unparalleled national network of candidates, sophisticated technology, rigorous market research and analytics, a holistic communications process and deep industry knowledge.

We present top candidates to you through comprehensive profiles, and we arrange interviews for each candidate you select.

But we don’t stop there. Our direct hire recruiting professionals provide experienced, consultative assistance at every step of the way. We work closely with you and with the candidate throughout the interview, negotiation and on-boarding process.

We’re here to stay in a world of transient recruiting “experts”
